Shelving as a Room Divider

bookcase / room divider

Room dividers can be the screen-type products I showcased a couple days ago - but certain types of shelving can also serve as a room divider, if you have space for a bit more depth. There are lots of options here - let me show you just a few. The one above is the DNA bookshelf from Linfa Design of Italy. [via Por Homme]

For a more traditional look, there's the Content by Conran shelving; I've shown two different pieces above. For those in the U.S., the Conran Shop has the second piece. [via Fresh Design Blog]

This 7-foot-tall asymmetrical red shelf come from my blog sponsor, Greentea Design.

And this shelving, called Self, was designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. The shelves themselves are available in white or black; the dividing walls are available in nine different colors. [via High Fashion Home]

And finally, the one that's getting a lot of attention on design blogs lately is called Aakkoset, from Kayiwa of Finland; it can either hold books (and other objects) or be left empty. It's available in eight different colors. [via ohdeedoh and Freshome]

These are great. I love the alphabet one, but I'm disappointed that they didn't make use of the blank space for more storage. I wish I had room for one of these!
